people with guns are the problem...
From what I've heard having meaningful regulations on gun ownership results in less gun-deaths.
mostly because it means less people have access to guns when they're angry/drunk/etc. (not saying they would be all the time; people get upset at times, and act irationally)

When the regular people are rendered powerless, the outlaws move in and take over. Simple as that. Gangs have been holding people hostage for a very long time in these areas, it won't go away overnight, and it won't go away without a fight. Most good people have been powerless and terrorized for so long, they don't know how to be anything else. All they know to do is keep their heads down, their doors locked, and hope they stay under the radar. Not a pretty way to live.

Police said the shooting, which stems from an ongoing gang conflict in the Marquette Park neighborhood, happened about 6:40 p.m.
